If you add shipping \
~$10.00 each time So 21/3 each shipment= 7 shipments for $70 each contestant

Total cost for each contestant:
$299.95 or $300 for EACH contestant.
I'd say that is very generous indeed!
Actually I'd like to correct your math. The bolded portion is wrong. The samples are shipped three times. 3 cans first shipment, 6 cans second shipment, and 12 cans third shipment. That would make the shipping (ground) for the first batch $12. Don't know the second or third as they offer free shipping over $50.

Still, it is alot of money for a contest. THANKS SOCIAL SMOKE!!!

Nobody ever know when contests will be until Samb announces them. As to the join date, that's something new to the current contest. Don't know if they'll keep doing it or what.
